Canada’s premiere opera/ballet company Opera Atelier has announced the 2018–19 season featuring two French Baroque operas: Charpentier’s Actéon and Rameau’s Pygmalion. The double-bill will tour to the Palace of Versailles (for the fifth time) and to the US in a to-be-announced venue.

Most notably, Soprano Measha Brueggergosman will return to Opera Atelier to star as Elettra in Mozart’s Idomeneo (Apr. 4 – 13, 2019). She will join Tenor Colin Ainsworth (named Opera Atelier’s first Artist in Residence for 2018-2019) in both title roles with rising stars Wallis Giunta (Idamante), Meghan Lindsay (Ilia), Olivier Laquerre (Arbace), Douglas Williams (Neptune), and Bradley Christensen (Priest). The opera will be sung in the original Italian with English Subtitles.

Along with the double-bill, Opera Atelier has commisioned a new work for solo baroque violin and contemporary dance, entitled Inception. Following the evening’s theme of metamorphosis, Edwin Huizinga (violin) and Tyler Gledhill (dancer) will seek to transform the performance space as an overture to Pygmalion.

Casting for the French language Pygmalion includes Colin Ainsworth in both title roles, alongside Mireille Asselin (Diana & Amour), Allyson McHardy (Juno & Céphise), Jesse Blumberg, Christopher Enns, Meghan Lindsay, Cynthia Smithers and Anna Sharpe.

LEBRECHT LISTENS | Alisa Weilerstein's "Transfigured Night" Should Be A Top-Drawer Recommendation

By Norman Lebrecht on July 27, 2018

Weilerstein’s first album with Pentatone and the Trondheim Soloists should be a top-drawer recommendation, but it lacks the power needed for a convincing exploration of Viennese musical heritage.
